It’s hard not to be inspired by the success Long Island’s Stray From The Path have garnered in their 10+ year history. Refusing to do anything except stick to their (musical) guns), Stray From The Path don’t bow to trends or shoehorn overwrought technicality into their alternative hardcore. No, the band has continued to inject important political and era-specific diatribes into Internal Atomics, their new record that’s out today. In a world where boorish politicians and world “leaders” throw out completely debunked falsehoods and scare tactics that cause their citizens to fear those who might be different from them, Stray From The Path are here to make you think a little, too.

Recently having teased a new album Only Death Is Real, Stray From The Path are back to challenge your notions of what a politically-oriented alternative hardcore band should sound like in 2017.

Clearly, that’s what Stray From The Path are doing with their new song, “Goodnight Alt-Right”. It hits harder than just about anything they’ve ever done, and given this is the same band who wrote Make Your Own History 8 years ago (!!!), that’s saying something.
